This is valuable. I am a high school teacher and I’m asking my students to look at digital portfolios of students in High Tech High. But my focus on “learning from High Tech High” has overshadowed the first question: “What do you want to put out there?” Creating a domain of one’s one DOOO is the next step. Someday that student will have his or her own domain name. That’s beyond the Linked In account and the websites. The student will have a blog perhaps, too.
Bravo for your point. DOMAIN OF ONE’S OWN is a wonderful acronym.
